Serif typefaces were everywhere in 2016 – especially serifs with angled serif's and terminals. You know them – Fortescue, Gza, Harbours, Bluu, Bagnard – almost every graphic designer on the planet gave 'em a go. Towards the end of 2016 they all seemed to roll into one – a blocky, rigid, semi luxurious, yet trendy amalgamation – they had lost their wow.
But it seems typography in 2017 is off to a good start with The Designer Foundry's release of 'Morion' a typeface that obviously takes a little influence from the angled serif's of 2016, but combines it with flowing curves, and an almost gothic style vibe. We're really digging it.
Originally drawn in 2014 by David Einwaller with assistance from Daniel McQueen, it has gone under constant refinement for the good part of 3 years, and is finally available in it's final form.
Accompanying the release of Morion, is the release of a limited line of waterproof raincoats, hand screen printed in New Zealand. Raincoats – it's something we've seen a lot of lately.
